Hm. Seems you got the right PID (gdb finds the executable after all).
Are you perhaps running under SELinux? (i just boldly assumed some
GNU/Linux). Which distribution, which kernel version (there seems to be
a bug in 2.4-ish Linux kernels which manifests itself like that, but
that's quite a while ago).

Next time, please tell us what OS is under you (although it might be fun
to watch people make wild guesses :)
